Denon Professional highlighted its DN-F300 and DN-F400 solid-state audio players at 2009 InfoComm, with both units able to read MP3 files and uncompressed WAV files from SD or SDHC cards (the DN-F300 reads from USB drives as well).
Housed in a compact 1U-rackspace enclosure, the DN-F300 offers contractors and system integrators a versatile solid-state audio player at an extremely cost-effective price point.
It also has IR control and a microphone input, making it a good selection for fitness and dance applications as well as background music playback.
Additionally, the mic input has music ducking, which helps for paging in BGM applications, and it also features ±12% pitch control.
Elevated from a standard audio playback device, the DN-F400 is a 1RU, half-rack-space unit designed for background music, message on hold, repetitive messaging, crisis management, or any application requiring audio to be running continuously.
The DN-F400 features balanced/unbalanced outputs and is also controllable via RS-232-C and GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output).
Additionally, the optional RC-F400 remote controller features a large LCD display and enhances the DN-F400’s capability by providing an ergonomically designed, intuitive control unit for instant playback of audio or audio elements (sound effects) via its hot-buttons.
“The DN-F300 and DN-F400 represent Denon’s next generation of audio playback devices,” stated Karl Gustafson, Brand Manager, Denon Professional Products. “These new products were based on direct feedback from contractors and system integrators and provide high-quality, digital audio playback solutions in a 1RU rack format. They are ideal for the fixed installation/sound contracting markets.”
